Director Mel Stuart draws inspiration from author William L. Shirer's best-selling biography of the same name to reveal how a failed artist and Austrian paper-hanger altered the course of history after becoming one of the world's most powerful leaders. Interviews with many of Adolph Hitler's closest associates pain a vivid picture of his malevolent charisma and barbarous doctrine, and the methods by which he convinced an entire country to commit mass genocide.
